Serenaded by the Sounds of Hammers

The front desk staff were great. Room service was spectacular. The grounds were beautiful and the physical hotel was elegant. However, I was awoken at 8am to the sound of hammers and construction coming from above below and on the side of my room. I called the front desk to ask if they could assist but they were unable to give me more than an apology and a late check out

Not comparable to the Ritz I haven known !

I have stayed at the Ritz in numerous cities. And this is no more than an upgraded chain motel. It was clean - the front staff is rude - pool staff are rude. Everything else was okay but far from the Ritz standards I have grown to know. :(

Internet is so poor

The hotel charges almost USD10 / day for the Internet. But, Internet is very poor during the stay.

Excellent Spa...Hotel pricey and somewhat vintage but overall Nice!

Overpriced is the only complaint i would say. Everything can be pricey. But the spa was top notch. Hot stone is definitely recommended. I had a woman named Ledia (i think) she has been in that profession for 11 years.

Not Great, but good

Started out rough! Nice recovery. Not the typical Ritz expereince. Some of the staff have not read The Ritz Carlton Way, while others truly embrace it!

Best Hotel in Orlando

The only issue we had was there were no king bedrooms available at check in. Other than that, it was great! The grounds were wonderful, fitness center was great as was the overall interior of the hotel.

Mall at Millenia is the best shopping area we saw. There is also an outlet mall off Hwy. 4, to the southwest of the hotel, but it was very busy so we didn't go.

Ritz Carlton - Orlando

It's a beautiful property with a great pool area. The cleanliness of the room left some to be desired - definitely not up to what you expect from Ritz.
